    Felt comfortable in cambie hostel and would book again. (I am a female solo traveller). 2 mins walk from waterfront station so it was very easy to get around, especially from the airport. Downtown area felt safe. Stayed in a two bed dorm room. Room was quiet and clean enough. Bathrooms were ok - clean enough. Wifi and hot water worked fine. The only downsides was there was NO common area to sit down and socialise, or even a couch to sit on to read a book. Limited showers - only one per floor.

    The hostel is located in Gastown, very close to the city center and in an area full of bars and restaurants. It was very uiet during the night, except some noise coming from the street traffic. The rooms were tiny and clean, but missing individual lamp and plug. The bathroom could have been cleaner. In summary, good value for money, considering the prices of other housing options in the area.

    Great location, and it was very clean and everything went smoothly. It was however so hot in the rooms, that it was hard to sleep. Felt like little saunas in there. There was no air condition or fan or the like.

    Great location for downtown Vancouver, lots of nearby transit options. The bar downstairs was nice, and the discount was appreciated. Women’s bathroom was not very clean and no A/C in the rooms was pretty brutal during a heatwave. Overall a decent place to stay for a weekend trip.

    Great if you just need a place to sleep, but I wouldn’t bother if you’re looking to socialise.
